Schools Committee
Kim Wine thanked everyone who helped with the fantastic appreciation lunch for Pearce teachers.

See the Events section of and plan to attend. It’s a potluck so bring a dish and bring your children! There will be a movie outside in the wedge if the weather is good. We want to show our commitment to public schools and the need for Mueller to be the unnamed elementary in the bond package.

The schools committee is still accepting surveys and wants to compile the results before the Jan. 7th event. There was open discussion about the influence Dr. Carstarphen has on the school board. Corky suggested using any influence possible from organizations you are active in. There was a suggestion to talk to the city demographer… Grant will follow up.

Supper Clubs

Jan. 9 MNA meeting
The January MNA meeting will be a chance to provide input into the City of Austin’s Comprehensive Plan. We’ll host their Imagine Austin ‘meeting in a box’ and our input will be provided to the City. See "> " title=" " /> for more information. We’re also planning to have Brewster McCracken come visit with us about the Pecan Street Project.

Open Discussion
A resident inquired about the status of getting a traffic light at Airport and Zach Scott. Many thought it would have been installed by now. Grant will check with the City. It was mentioned that because the Tom Miller intersection is so close to the Airport intersection, a light may cause traffic to back up on Zach Scott, blocking the Tom Miller intersection.

Someone suggested a bus stop for the #350 bus be located on both sides of Airport at Zach Scott.

Ann Jerome thanked everyone for their help with the Lights of Love fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House. They had 915 participants and raised $123.000. The Mueller Flyers were the #3 team in fundraising. Way to go!

Holiday snacks were plentiful after the meeting and neighbors had a chance to get to know each other.
